SMDC’s ‘Gold’ standard | Inquirer Business


Many hold gold in high esteem, and understandably so.

Given its intrinsic value, beauty, flexibility and even malleability, gold has seen so many uses over centuries. It can be fashioned into an intricately designed precious jewelry piece, a priceless artwork or an avant garde fixture. It can be used as a raw material for electronics, industrial, medical and technological purposes. It is a tangible asset, too, that does not spoil nor does it lose its luster, as gold even continues to appreciate in value over time.

These same distinct hallmarks—completeness, functionality, flexibility and intrinsic value—that have given gold its premium will soon be seen in an exceptional landmark that is set to rise in one of the more dynamic areas in the metro.

Located along Ninoy Aquino Avenue in Parañaque City, the 11.6-hectare Gold City by SM Development Corp. (SMDC) will be a fully integrated premium development, which will have residential towers that will comprise Gold Residences, residential-office buildings, manicured gardens, well-appointed amenities and clusters of modern retail hubs upon full completion.

This up-and-coming masterplanned project is well poised to prove that it is indeed worth its weight in gold. And easily, a number of reasons comes to mind.

Completeness, functionality

Despite the magnitude of this project, Gold City will cohesively bring together multiple uses in a single community—exuding a sense of completeness and belongingness, while offering residents, locators and guests a reassurance of being near essential shops, services and other key institutions.

In Gold City, one will find prime residential condominium projects by SMDC called Gold Residences, replete with well-thought-out amenities and lush open spaces that could offer the modern urban dweller with an opulent, bespoke and holistic lifestyle. Here, future residents will get a taste of the full, dynamic life—besides having an elegant home in the metro, they will also have easy access to offices and commercial spaces, where they will find a curated selection of retail and dining outlets as well as leisure hubs and entertainment centers.

In fact, this early, Gold City was named “Best Township Development” at the 2019 Dot Property Southeast Asia Awards.

Meanwhile, a planned streetscape that promotes walkability and a subterranean parking that protects you and your vehicles from the harsh heat, heavy rains and flooding will also further strengthen the resiliency and sustainability of Gold Residences and the entire masterplanned development that is Gold City.

Apart from encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle among residents, employees and guests, these same features will also help reduce your carbon footprint, by allowing you to walk from one location of the development to another, come rain or shine.

Easily, Gold City and Gold Residences will offer a dynamic, vibrant community that ensures a safer and more efficient way of living.


That Gold City will rise in a highly strategic, prime location offers its dwellers a unique kind of flexibility—one that could provide you with unparalleled accessibility and connectivity.

Since it is across the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Terminal 1, Gold City proves to be the ideal juncture as it could provide local and global connectivity. It is likewise near transport hubs such as the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange; major thoroughfares and key infrastructure projects that include the Naia Expressway (Naiax); central business districts in Makati City and Bay Area; prestigious schools such as Singapore School Manila, PATTS College of Aeronautics, St. Scholastica’s College; College of St. Benilde, De La Salle University; as well as hospitals and churches.

Gold City is shaping up to be a premier gateway in itself.

Intrinsic value

Its features alone should be enough to ensure—or even assure—that Gold City is a smart, practical property investment option for you.

Since the launch of the first phase of Gold Residences in November last year, the development has posted an impressive compounded annual growth rate of 8 percent. Ninety nine percent of its inventory, equivalent to 2,450 units valued at P17.5 billion, has already been sold—proof that it is truly an investment as precious as gold.

Looking beyond its stellar performance, one would also see the lucrative investment potential of Gold City. In a post-pandemic era, as soon as the economy has fully bounced back, Gold City will no doubt be the ideal homestay for foreign tourists and business travelers given its proximity to the airport, and a conducive alternative site for businesses wanting to set up up shop in the emerging office district here.

More importantly, as the economy picks up pace, the appreciation of capital land values, prices in the secondary market and rental rates in Gold City will further prove to be favorable for those who decided to invest early in this premier masterplanned development.

There’s no second guessing that Gold City will truly be another landmark project that many would hold in high esteem. It will be an investment well worth your hard earned savings as Gold City will soon be a community that is safe, thriving and vibrant, while offering a bespoke lifestyle that most suitably addresses the modern needs of today’s urban dweller.
